Richard is the principal physiotherapist at Activ Therapy, with over 10 years experience in private practice, workplace injury, public hospital, community and sports. Richard's approach focuses on identifying dysfunction in motor patterns, biomechanical imbalance and dysfunction to find the source of your pain problem.
Richard currently works closely with a broad range of sporting and fitness organisations and has special interest and experience with Crossfit, martial arts and fighting sports as well as soccer.
Once he has assessed your problem and identified the source of your pain and functional limitation, Richard applies a variety of treatment interventions including:
Active Release Techniques (registered practitioner)
Mulligans joint mobilisations
Kinesiology taping (k-tape)
Functional re-training including specialising in thoracic ring as well as scapulo-thoracic and lumbo-pelvic dysfunction.
SFMA Level 1 and 2 accredited?
FMS Y Balance Test certified
Richard has also completed a masters of workplace injury management and occupational rehabiiltation. This has allowed him to gain in depth knowledge to assist in the recovery from work related injury as well as ergonomics and manual handling.
Recently Richard has completed the SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment) courses in level 1 and 2 uses this clinical approach to seek the source of the problem. Often the true cause of a problem can be in a different body region to the pain. As a practitioner interested in prevention and performance, the SFMA is also a system that can be used to identify issues in people that haven't had an injury or no longer have pain from an older injury. If this sounds like you then perhaps the SFMA approach can help.
Outside of the clinic Richard has a passion for sports. Currently training in Brazilian ju jitsu as a purple belt and playing soccer and basketball in local competitions.
Richard is a Korean speaking Physiotherapist and is able to provide services for those that require consultations in Korean.
